The rooms are very cozy in this hotel. The bed was large and comfortable. The service is very welcoming and they make sure you enjoy your stay. The location is very convenient to visit the city or for a business trip.

We traveled to Lyon over Thanksgiving 2015 and had a wonderful stay at the Hotel Le Royal. For the time of year it was a great location to get to the more busy, shopping part of town, or to walk to the more historic part. The staff is extremely welcoming and helpful with restaurant recommendations and directions. Our room was... More

I love the Place Bellecourt where this beautiful hotel is situated. The breakfast buffet is the moste exquisite, eggs for instance served already opened and seasoned. The rooms are small but very beautifully furnished. Beautiful porcelain collection in the lobby area!

We loved our room, we loved that they use Fragonard soap, we love that they provided robes and new slippers to take away with you if you wanted (slippers only), I loved that we got a nice panoramic city view (if you dared to lean over your short balcony to view it) and that you could close the double doors...

My husband and I recently stayed at the Le Royal Lyon and enjoyed our three night stay. The junior suite was large and comfortable(2 bathrooms). The view, overlooking the Place Bellecour was perfect to watch the area and activity in Lyon. As a special treat, the hotel also features the L'Instit Paul Bocuse, one of our best meals in Lyon....

What a beautiful hotel. We chose a Junior Suite Rotunde, as we’d been traveling for a month and wanted to end our trip on a bit of a decadent note! And it was. Large, Luxurious and even Glamorous with a view! The beds are unbelievable and the linens divine. Outside your room, the Red Bar is so much fun! And... More

This is a nice old hotel with nice helpful staff. But why we chose this hotel is the location. You can let the staff park your car in the garage (additional 27 Euro) and go for a walk in the heart of Lyon. Very good experience if you have only limited time to stay and see the town. Also many... More

Very nice location. Great breakfast. One of the best I had in France. Friendly and helpful staff. The are very good at recommending local restaurants. Standard rooms are quite small but junior suits are very comfortable. Next time in Lyon we will definitely stay there.

We travelled a long way from Vancouver, Canada to Lyon and needed a place to rest and get our bearings. Le Royal was the perfect hotel for our family (including 4 year old). The room was comfortable, with a great view. The food was fantastic, and the service was very attentive, while not intrusive. I highly recommend Le Royal and... More
